Download this expert dialogue to gain insights into the government cybersecurity landscape, how privileged access management can be used to comply with the Executive Order to move towards a Zero Trust security posture, and how Zero Trust and PAM combine to mitigate cyber risk. You'll hear from the following cybersecurity experts:

  • Mike Witt - Senior Agency Information Security Officer and Chief Information Security Officer, National Aeronautics and Space Administration

  • Jeremy Wilson - Deputy CISO for Security Operations, State of Texas Department of Information Resources

In their Special Publication, 800-207, Zero Trust Architecture, NIST points to identity as the critical first step to regaining control over the perimeter, and to Zero Trust as the best security architecture for meeting the requirements of hybrid, cloud, and often multi-cloud network infrastructures. Guided by the two core mantras of “Assume breach” and “Never trust, always verify”, and built on a foundation of cybersecurity paradigms that include enforcing continuous authentication, eliminating persistent trust, implementing the least privilege, enforcing segmentation and micro-segmentation, and ensuring visibility, Zero Trust can help organizations:

  • Reduce the attack surface
  • Prevent unauthorized access to data and services
  • Control the impact threshold of any threat that does present itself to the network.

Security for a modern Common Office Environment (COE) should adhere to the foundational principles of zero trust to affect a shift away from the perimeter and network security controls as being the primary method used to secure resources. Read on to explore how the modern COE should evolve to reflect a zero trust and identity-centric posture.

A secure zero trust environment is not a singular product or concept. It requires a shift in how government agencies and commercial enterprises view and execute network security. Rather than molding current cybersecurity defenses to a changing workplace, organizations need to take a step back and start by contextualizing their network activity. This will allow them to accurately understand how users behave on the network so they can plan the appropriate defenses. To acquire this level of comprehension, however, access needs to be rooted in a master concept of identity—which is why identity marks the first pillar of the federal government’s zero trust vision.
